Hi Kate,

You are allowed to use one in line citation to speak for numerous paraphrases. You can say the work of (Someone 2015) deals with... and then provide the various sentences you require. Generally the rule for assuming that the one in line citation is speaking for all of your following discussion ends either at the end of the paragrapah or as soon as you mention the work of a different author.

If you need to quote you would need to put in (2015, p.5) after the quote, but you needn't use the authors name if you have established that already.

Also if you have a sort of compound quote from bits of a different document you can reference it like this (Someone 2015, p.5,6,12)

Hope this helps, let me know if not.
